HOLY. CRAP. Did you know that "Pinkberry" isn’t just your Midwestern aunt’s cutesy name for her lower lady bits? TRUE STORY. It's also the name of a Cali-based chain of frozen yogurt joints. FRO YO. YOU KNOW, YO? Ok. That is the last time I will call it that. Stupidest snack name ever.
As Erica mentioned in her April Pinkberry-tingling post about the current state of Park Slope frozen treats, this summer Park Slope residents are getting a Pinkberry of their very own--on July 20th to be exact.
I recently had a brief chat with Pinkberry’s Director of East Coast Operations Pete Casey, and he told me that in the weeks leading up to the opening on 7th Ave and Garfield they'll be stopping by local businesses to hand out samples of their frozen yogurt. By the 19th they will be hosting a friends & family opening from 6-10pm where the public can try a small version of their frozen yogurt with a topping. The next day, they'll officially open.
